A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

GOING DOTTY !

Hi Everyone

I hope you have had a good day .. .. we have done well here and not had one drop of rain here all day.. ..  which can't be bad.

I have had a day of wedding work .. .. some of which involved me having to hold glued pieces in place until they "took hold" .. .. which was quite good as it gave me a free hand to do some "one handed commenting" today.  I feel much better at having caught up with some of your lovely blogs .. .. .. but I know I still have loads more to visit.  Never mind I'll get there.

For now though, here is my share for the day:





This used:

Sentiment:  Great Impressions "E411"
Backing Papers:  Wild Rose Studies "Polka Dots"
Martha Stewart Punch:  Embossed Zig Zag
Sizzix Dies:  "Elegant Flourish" and "Daises #2"
Buttons and Cord from the Stash Box

and that is it.

No colouring at all today :-(

I'll catch you again tomorrow.  Lots I want to do tonight before The Apprentice starts and then I am hoping I stay awake whilst watching it.

We had a very late night last night and my eyes are a tad tired!!!

Love

Heh Jules, lovey card with beautiful colours. Sure those spots haven't helped your tired eyes. A hot bath is what you need with a couple of slices of cucumber on your eyes and a glass of red, bliss :)

Have a lovely evening xx

Wonderful card Jules, I love the colour combination. I'm always drawn to green, this shade especially, and it looks so good teamed with black and white.
